140/365 Scary !!!

140/365 Scary
These photos cost me a couple of bucks each !!!
I wanted to call them chicken ninnys but thought it might hurt their self esteem !

I'm not sure I should pay little Mama the whole amount, her head is only kind of halfway in there!!
What brave children I have .

138/365 Cooling Off

138/365 Cooling Off
That's what the last day of school/first day of summer is all about.
Playing in the water and eating popsicles. 
It almost feels like a tradition. When all the kids get in "big" school then I'm going to have to make it one.
Happy summer everyone !!!

137/365 Happy Birthday Love !!!

137/365 Happy Birthday Little Mama
It has been quite a week in our house. First school gets out, The Rhino moves to another class and now my little girl turned 7 today. I think it's almost as much as I can take. 
Just kidding, the first 2 days of summer have been great now I only have about 90 more to go. I'm like the little engine that could, I think I can, I think I can !!!
Well we went out for the traditional birthday dinner and had alot of fun.

I think she had a great day and really was pleased with all the things she got from all the people she loves so much. 
She just seemed so content all day, it was very sweet.

Getting her to hold her hands like this was a whole lot of trouble, but when we
figured it out (I have to figure out how to tell her and she has to figure out what I'm saying)
this cute picture got snapped.

She's looking at her new watch next to her new Lava Lamp, really she had no idea 
how to use either so it was also a day filled with learning.

I love you Little Mama, Happy Birthday !!!
If I could bottle you up and keep you like this forever I might think about doing it, well maybe for a minute !!!

136/365 3 Heads are better than 1 ???

136/365 3 Heads are better than 1, Maybe???
I guess it depends on how much bickering they do, right? 
It's going to be a long summer unless we keep them from butting heads!!!

135/365 Summer Safety

135/365 Summer Safety

I'm praying for everyone to have a happy and safe summer.
We are looking forward to swimming alot, we've already started. I'm excited that Little Man has already decided he no longer needs his floaties but at the same time I'm freaking out nervous. I'm nervous that I will forget to be as vigilant as I have to be when it comes to him in the pool.
Then I also worry about LIttle Mama's nose, she has already scrapped it on the bottom of the pool, any more scrapes and it's just going to be one giant scar !!!

134/365 Mimosa

134/365 Mimosa
The dancing bears, they live around the corner from us and are always decorated in some way shape or form. This is the traditional May Pole decor except they are without their MayPole !!!
I thought the Mimosa tree was just so beautiful with the bears in the background.

133/365 The Rhino

133/365 The Rhino
Well he's moving on up, from 3rd to 4th grade and that's a big change in the Montessori classroom.
That's like moving from practice school to real school, from no homework to alot every night, from 24 kids to 65 kids, from being the top dog to being a 4th grader with all those big 6th graders around.
I must admit I'm kind of weepy, a little sad, not feeling as comfortable as I was yesterday, BUT I know how great of a guy he is and how he loves with his heart and is very forgiving. I also know that he is growing into such an amazing person, just this morning I heard him tell Little Man that "this behavior is prohibited" ???  I was wondering when that word even became a part of his vocabulary? It's not like I walk around using it EVER. Anyway here is to the last day of school !!! It's killing me.

Isn't she beautiful !!! She was so pretty. I took maternity photos of her mom and posted them on here as well. She is soooo very cute and was such a good baby. 

I'm not always into the frilly things but this turned out very cute.
That hair is just so incredible !

129/365 Rattlesnake Beans

129/365 Rattlesnake Beans
So the corn in our garden has grown about 8 inches in the last 2 weeks, it's amazing. 
We were waiting for it to be about that tall before we plant the Rattlesnake Beans as well as the pumpkins, it's all about them working/growing together. 
Well today was the day and the kids just love planting stuff in the garden. I think they really like planting seeds. 

Rob makes the holes and then we take turns putting the seeds in, it works out just perfectly.

I also got a new camera, but that is a celebration that should be done 
with a dedicated post some other time !!!!

He wanted to be in the tree,  scarred me to death!

127/365 Big Daddies

127/365 Big Daddies
Man they love to swim, kids that is.
They especially like to swim with their dads.
Let's play a game, how many kids can you get in the hot tub with 2 dads???

Well there is your answer, 7 and I think the new one would be there if he could but his belly button just fell off so he will have to wait a year!
Dads are good at so many things in the pool here are just a few :
1) making big waves when they do cannonballs off the diving board
2) as flotation devices when you need a breather
3) making bubbles in the hot tub
4) keeping an eye on all the kids in the pool while the moms are fixing dinner
and so many more I just can't list !!!

126/365 Pinot & Picasso

126/365 Pinot & Picasso 
This is pre-rowdiness. The drinks were just starting to flow, we were cracking our knuckles in preparation for the long evening of color mixing, stroke making confusion. It was alot of fun and I want to do it again, soon. Plus it made me feel like a real painter and I love that feeling, even if it was sort of paint by number.

Everyone was in a tizzy about this "bitch" wine. 
So here it is, if you have a friend who needs a little slap back to reality maybe a bottle of Bitch wine would help get the message across.

Julie you made the blog, in all your apron wearing paint stroking glory !!!!

125/365 SwimRing

125/365 SwimRing
Summer is quickly approaching. The days are getting warmer and the pools are too. Although this last visit to a friends pool was painful to get in, really I just stuck my feet in but the kids are completely immune to the temperature. Little Man had purple lips and chattering teeth. I suppose it's like getting a tattoo or maybe your ears pierced, you know it's going to be uncomfortable and even take your breathe away but you do it anyway because you want it that bad. I guess I didn't want to swim that bad because I didn't make it all the way in !!! I'll leave the blue lips and chattering teeth to the kids, they won't remember when they grow up !!!!

124/365 Gardening

124/365 Gardening
We did a little this weekend, my very first official garden. 
I was to late to plant tomatoes but we did anyway, we will see how they turned out.

We planted a watermelon vine that should get really big and give us a lovely melon.

He's just making sure that all our markers are in place, we don't want to lose those cause we'd
never know what was what. 

Then a little run through the sprinkler to wet themselves down before the tough
watering work comes.

Really that watering can is very heavy for those little cute arms. 

It was a great way to spend a saturday with my family, I am so blessed by
each and every one of them!!!

123/365 Church

123/365 Church
I'm finally figuring out how Photoshop works.
It's making my life easier, even though I try not to process to much.
I took this picture a while back and now I have put a texture over it and voila!!!
I kind of like the look but I'm not sure when I would use it.
Anyway I'll try another process sometime soon.

122/365 Carnival

122/365 Carnival
So one of those little traveling carnivals came to the neighborhood. We have been to one before probably 4 years ago and the kids loved it. I thought we would give this one a try. WOW it was so very expensive and really kind of creepy. The people were actually nice enough but they all looked like they had been dragged off the street corner to run a kiddy ride !!! I tried really hard not to turn and run, can you imagine me running, but I was so close, so very close. The next time we go to one of these I will be more prepared for the weirdness. 

121/365 Baby T

121/365 Baby T
I know I already posted the hospital picture of him but I took these the other day and thought he was so cute. Also he was sooooo cooperative, I couldn't believe he was so easy, but then again I'm such a relaxed go with flow aunt how could he be any other way !!!!

This grape juice bowl thing was his great grandmothers, kind of an interesting thought.

And this bath tub was his grandmothers baby bath.

116/365 STOP Again

116/365 STOP Again
It's my new mantra.
It's time to slow down and stop and experience things.
It's hard to not want it all to happen immediately, and I am such an immediate gratification
